Radziejowice Palace

The beautiful palace complex in Radziejowice.

Radziejowice - a small town located on the slightly undulating terrain of the Mszczonów area, it has always charmed its visitors with its picturesque landscape and undisturbed peace. The renaissance mansion, numerously expanded and restructured through the years, achieved its current form of a standard baroque palace along with an extensive garden in the middle of the 17th century. Today, a multi-site cultural center is the most recognised beacon of art in the region. Basing our masterclasses in the Radziejowice Palace not only provides participants with countless, inspiring spaces for daily practising, but also allows access to many concert halls and venues within the palace complex.
